Sharing an old video of Banerjee doing Garba as she kicked off Durga Puja festivities in Kolkata in September this year, BJP Mumbai IT cell's co-convener Pallavi CT tweeted, “Nothing can stop this amazing cultural participation by Didi O’ Didi. PT exercise dandiya.”

Banerjee arrived in Chennai on Wednesday to attend the function.

She also met with Tamil Nadu chief minister MK Stalin. Calling Stalin her brother, Banerjee said “I came to attend a family function but could not have left without meeting with Stalin. Two political leaders together can talk about things other than politics, we did not discuss anything about politics,” ANI reported.

“I think it is my duty to meet Stalin ji and have a cup of coffee, what is popular in Chennai and we said Namasthe and Vanakkam,” she added.

Stalin hailed Banerjee as a dynamic personality and said her visit was a courtesy call. The Tamil Nadu chief minister added that he accepted Banerjee's invitation to visit Kolkata.
